Information and support branch


The Public Guardian operates a free information service for the general community about guardianship.

Our Information and Support branch can assist you with your questions about guardianship (enduring, private and public), medical consents and the role of the Public Guardian. If our information service is unable to assist you we will attempt to refer you to an agency or service that can.

The information service operates between 9am and 5pm Monday to Friday, except public holidays. Most enquiries can be answered by phone or email, or you can make an appointment to visit an information officer at our Parramatta office or one of our branches.
